Been Eating Here For Five or Six Years...My Family And I Love This Place!

My family and I have been eating at the Sun Fish Grill for five or six years now, each summer when we spend a week on the Outer Banks, right down the road from the restaurant, in Whalehead. It's the first-place we stop, typically; we all meet for lunch at the Sun Fish Grill, trickling in, as we... read more

It was by chance that we went to this restaurant and I wish I would have saved my money. I did not care for anything other than the shrimp. The best part of the meal was the shrimp. They were the best shrimp I have had in quite some time. They were flavorful, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Aside... More

I ate several times with my family and friends while spending a week in the OBX. First time I had the grit sticks (loved them) as an appetizer and the crab cakes (nothing but crab). Amazing! Service was spot on and my drink never was empty. Another night, I tried the chef's special - scallops wrapped in bacon cooked in... More

Not bad. Went for dinner one evening and was happy with what I ordered - by no means blown out of the water. Service was unfortunately slow-ish and not the most friendly. By no means we're they rude. I don't know that I would return only because there are plenty of other great restaurants to try. Give it a shot... More

Joined friends last night for dinner, my first time at Sun Fish Grill. Everyone was very happy with their meals, the Scallops in Cookie Dough Butter was an inventive and amazing pairing. Highly recommend.

Despite several empty tables, the kitchen was incredibly slow. The only thing fast about this place was the bus service cleaning up after our less than mediocre meal. Our waitress was nice and made a good recommendation for a beer, but that was the extent of the happy thoughts on this visit. There wasn't enough garlic to mask the awful... More

Dear Darren, We are not sure when you where here, if it was this year or not. Our new chef has had a terrific year. Our food and our service has been spot on in most cases. No restaurant will please everyone every time and this seems to have been your experience. We have been very busy this week because... More

Tonight our family of six adults, a toddler, and an infant enjoyed a great dinner. Service was excellent-efficient and very friendly. Menu selections were extensive and varied. Our choices of fish tacos prepared with Mahi Mahi and a perfectly prepared Mac and Cheese served with lobster and a unique goat cheese sauce were superb. Portions of both entrees and sides... More

The menu was limited. Party of 9 including 3 children. Consensus was unsatisfactory food. The service was poor but owner stated that server got bad news about her other while we were there. The dining environment was poor. The view was of the gas station across the street. The fish tacos were ok along with the she crab soup. Stay... More

HI Pear, I must respond to your review as it seems you just had a bad day. The day you ate here was a change over day which means we are very busy and you probably drove a long way to get here, got out of the car and ate. Maybe that had something to do with your upset stomach.... More

The owner greeted us as soon as we walked in and after seated gave excellent recommendations and answered all of our questions. The children had the Mac and cheese which was a very generous portion and they raved about it. For appetizers we had the calamari and also the home made nachos with chunks of chicken, bacon and cheese. Very... More
